    I grew up with a yellow Lotus in the garage. It was a 1970 Europa S2, custom-built LHD and picked up at the factory for a European tour by my parents. By the time I was 16 I was too tall to get in and use anything but the outsides of my shoes on the pedals. Not sure if I'd ever have a Sunday driver again, but if I did... no question: yellow Lotus.

    Yep, one of the few advantages of being my height - no problem with sport and supercars. Those and fighter jets were tailor made for me.

    Here is the current car project:

    My Hunter cruiser tucked away in my father in-law's AZ garage. He's a 567 Chevy guy, but just picked up this Nova II SS last fall.

    Personally, I LOVE wagons. Nice one. I'm a little surprised nobody has/had a Woody.

    How'd you pull 480 out of that? Turbos? Juice?

    I'd assume a 2001 had the 2.7 V6 twin turbo.

    Yeah, it has the 2.7 twin. I put on bigger turbos, fueling, meth injection...the list is so long it hurts. Unfortunately, I have to let this one go.

    The B5 S4 is a serious monster. It's not uncommon for guys to get 700+ out of the engine.

    I know were a few are in the 600 range. I'll post up some pics Monday of a monster VR being stuffed in a Quattro hatch.

    Being from the south, Georgia originally, I grew up around convertible muscle cars that my dad owned: 69 442 Convert, 68 Firebird 400 Convert, 67 Corvette 427 Convert and a 66 GTO Convert. I wish I had phots on my computer but sadly don't. I have always had a convertible in my life because of that but all have been of the 4x4 variety.
    Here are some I have had:
    1979 Scout II

    Killer Scout II. And I dig FJ60/62's. Look forward to seeing progress on that. I watched a couple come through eBay that were Japanese import RHD diesel high/sky tops and I was close to pullin' the trigger.

    I think I said it before, but the BRE style 510 with the Daisy wheels is awesome.

    Oh man...I don't think you posted pics of that wreck. That significant. You were in that and walked away?!
